What are some good connecting phrases in Japanese I can use to make my conversations more natural? In English we often say things like: "Well..." " That's a good question" " Actually.." "Although..." "However..." "As you may expect" "you might be interested to know that...." Can anyone help me find similar Japanese phrases?

Another suggestion. "As you may expect" - やっぱり、やはり(←相手も知っていることを前提とする言葉) - さすが (←ちょっと褒め言葉の意味がある) - ご承知のとおり(←丁寧) "you might be interested to know that...."  - 興味ある(知りたい)かもって思うんだけど、~ - ご興味おありかと思いますが、~
